CentOS

Seek some help on operating system drivers. Thanks!

Hello, I am a user of CentOS 7.6. I came here for help.
I recently bought a microserver called HPE Proliant MicroServer Gen10(X3216 APU).
CentOS 7.6 was installed for it. I found that the fan of the machine would keep turning and the noise was very loud. I searched everywhere but I couldn't find any way out.

Pardon my ignorance showing. I don’t know where to seek help.

When I use sensors-detect:
Sorry, no sensors were detected.
Either your system has no sensors, or they are not supported, or
they are connected to an I2C or SMBus adapter that is not
supported.

git.centos.org : Delayed migration

Issues when updating CentOS 7

Hi all,

I wanted to update my CentOS 7 install this morning and I started
getting the errors from below.

Any ideas on a fix?

They seem to be related to cinnamon which I actually don't use at all
(the machine was prepared by our IT at work and they install both
Gnome and Cinnamon by default).

Since I don't use it, I guess an option would be to remove it
altogether and then I will probably not have the update issues
anymore.

Ark vs. RAR files under CentOS 7

Hi,

Over the past weeks, I've configured and fine-tuned a bells-and-whistles
desktop based on CentOS 7 and KDE, which I've documented in detail on my
blog:

* <a href="https://www.microlinux.fr/poste-de-travail-entreprise-centos-7-kde/" title="https://www.microlinux.fr/poste-de-travail-entreprise-centos-7-kde/">https://www.microlinux.fr/poste-de-travail-entreprise-centos-7-kde/</a>

So far I have one single thing that's not working. It's a little detail,
but I'm sure it will come bite me, since I know some of my users need
this functionality.

Ark (KDE's archive manager) can't handle RAR files, even though unrar is
installed under the hood.

It looks like I have to rebuild Ark to get this functionality.

anaconda / min_luks_entropy

I'am running into this

<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1206101" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1206101">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1206101</a>

while trying to handcraft a kickstart file for CentOS7.

Does anybody knowns a workaround?

Kickstart putting /boot on sda2 (anaconda partition enumeration)?

Does anyone know how anaconda partitioning enumerates disk partitions when
specified in kickstart? I quickly browsed through the anaconda installer
source on github but didn't see the relevant bits.

I'm using the centOS 6.10 anaconda installer.

Somehow I am ending up with my swap partition on sda1, /boot on sda2, and
root on sda3.

CVE-2019-0211 httpd24 / EL6

Does the SIG has plans to update these rpms for EL6?

Hello!

On my server PC i have Centos 7 installed.
CentOS Linux release 7.6.1810.
There are four arrays RAID1 (software RAID)

But if I disable any drive from which RAID1 is built the system crashes, there is a partial boot and as a result the Entering emergency mode.
By all rules RAID1 in case of similar failure of one of disks the system has to recognize this moment at loading, analyze that from the array only one disk is available and forcibly

nobody:nobody

Hey Y'all,

For the last week or more I've been trying to get NFS and OpenLDAP to
play nice with each other. I've pretty much worn the Google machine out
trying to find a solution. I've found several that said "Solved" but
none of those solutions solved my nobody:nobody problem.

In the past I've used NFS in conjunction with NIS to share home
directories from my NFS server but I read that NIS is deprecated in
favor of LDAP so, being a sucker for new ideas, I decided I would use
LDAP too like the big boys do. I think I'm regretting this decision.

Getting slapd under CentOS 6 to log connections, etc.

I am running the stock OpenLDAP-servers on a CentOS 6 system. Everything is
working just fine, but I am trying to debug connections from a Ubuntu (18.04)
system and want to turn on logging in slapd, but although I can get slapd to
create a log file, it never actually writes anything.

I have these two lines in /etc/openldap/slapd.d/cn=config.ldif:

olcLogFile: /var/log/slapd/log
olcLogLevel: conns BER config ACL stats none

And although /var/log/slapd/log gets created, nothing is ever written to it.

What am I missing?

NFSv4: Using fsid=0 but *not* exporting the root filesystem

Hi,

I would like to use the NFSv4 ability to create a "root" filesystem with
fsid=0, so that I don't have to refer to the whole path of the exported
filesystem when I mount it. However I do *not* want this root
filesystem to be mountable by any host.

CUPS issues

We've got this huge HP DesignJet Z9 printer, for printing posters.
Except... I got the latest hplips installed, it knows this printer... but
there are no poster-sized settings.

Now, I've started hacking the .ppd, as I did six year ago for the old
poster printer, but it seems, after a good bit of googling, that it would
be easier, when I hit print from okular, and get the dialog window, to go
to properties->page, and set it to custom, and set the width and height...
except I can't: both width and height are grayed out.

Now, I'm running as me.

How to specify kernel version when restart kdump

Hi,

Is there a way to specify kernel version when (re)start kdump

RHEL/CentOS 8.x, KDE & EPEL

Hi,

A question to those familiar with third party repository policy. You
think there's a real chance KDE's Plasma 5 desktop will be made
available by EPEL or some other third party repository for CentOS 8.x?

I'm asking because up until recently one of my desktop configurations
was based on CentOS 7 and KDE 4. My users really like the KDE desktop
(like myself). I rebased most of my desktop configurations on OpenSUSE
Leap when Red Hat announced it would drop KDE, but it would be nice to
have something that's a bit less of a moving target.

Cheers,

Niki

How to disable wifi access to CentOS 7

Hello all --
I run a hard wired network connection from my box and I don't want/need any
wifi connections trying to get to/from it. I came across this article from
the RedHat Bugzilla site --

I would love to just uninstall NetworkManager-wifi as suggested in the
last comment on this issue. The problem is when I try to do that, there's
about 25 dependencies on this package! Any thoughts on how to get around
this?

Thanks.

Gnome-tweak-tool-3.28.1 Update Results in Black Screen

Hello all,

The most recent update of Gnome-tweak-tool-3.28.1-2el7.2.noarch.rpm is

After clicking on the menu in Grub I get a black screen. I've tried setting
the "systemctl set-default multi-user.target" in the kernel parameters but
still a black screen. I then tried the Rescue boot in Grub but again a
black screen.

This issue started after Gnome-tweak-tool was updated an hour ago.

konqueror vs. centos and mathematics

I'm running centos 7.
Firefox spends so much time in th D state that I am trying konqueror.
Displaying mathematics on wikipedia,
e.g. Remez algorithm seems to be a no go.
Wikipedia seems to use tex, so I installed texlive and texlive-* .
Firefox hadn't needed it and it did not seem to help konqueror.
My guess is that there is a bit somewhere that I need to flip,
but I have no idea where it is.

Suggestions?

Testing software on CentOS 7

I need to test a new version of Geany but already have the repo version installed on all my systems. In order not to foul up my current installation, what is the suggested procedure for installing and testing this new version?

Suggestions appreciated, thank you.

openjdk headless now requires gtk2

PHP 7.x on CentOS 7 : which solution ?

Hi,

As you all know, CentOS 7 is shipping PHP 5.4, which is OK in some
situations. Unfortunately, some applications like OwnCloud require a
more recent version of PHP.

Up until recently, I've been using PHP 5.6 packages from the Webtatic
repository. Despite the bad press this third party repo seems to have,
it has been working perfectly for me for a few years.

dist-git

I would like to ask what is status of dist-git in CentOS? Do you use it is as bunch of packages or as package?

Originally dist-git was just bunch of packages copied to propper places. But since we started using dist-git in Copr we
packaged it:
<a href="https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=20308" title="https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=20308">https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=20308</a>
and gave it propper upstream:
<a href="https://github.com/release-engineering/dist-git" title="https://github.com/release-engineering/dist-git">https://github.com/release-engineering/dist-git</a>

Copr and Fedora now use this package.

boot issue with latest kernel

Hi all,

Has anyone seen this issue before? This afternoon, I tried updating a
bare metal CentOS 6 box, and got some odd error messages on the console
during booting kernel 2.6.32-754.11.1. (These aren't exact, I forgot
to try to get a photo of the console.)

sd 0:0:4:0 timed out resetting card
3w-sas timed out resetting card

Then the boot would simply hang, with no obvious disk activity on the
drives and no other messages on the console. Reverting back to an
earlier kernel (2.6.32-431.17.1) was perfectly fine.

Centos installer not detecting hard drive

Hi,

I have a new labtop and i want to install CentOS 7.6 on it.
My labtop has two hard drives :
- A 256Go SSD
- A standard 1 To hard drive
None of the two hard drives are detected by the Centos installer
consequently i can't proceed with the installation.

If i try with a Fedora server distro, then the standard hard drive is
detected, the SSD one is still not detected.

I do prefer to install Centos as is is the closed Linux version from RHEL,
so what can i do to solve the issue ?

I started off as always by using RPM's for everything I possibly can. I then
started to use CPAN for everything else.

I have checked /tmp/packaging.log and /tmp/anaconda.log, but cannot find any
errors here that would prevent installation.

Poor error messages, no usable lead for debug.

Network Bridge - error

Hi,

I'm new to CentOS. (I have tried Debian, Ubuntu, Devuan & Gentoo).
And also new to CloudStack.

I'm trying the Quick Installation Guide of CloudStack as pointed by Andrija
Panic of ShapeBlue
<a href="https://github.com/apache/cloudstack-documentation/blob/master/source/quickinstallationguide/qig.rst" title="https://github.com/apache/cloudstack-documentation/blob/master/source/quickinstallationguide/qig.rst">https://github.com/apache/cloudstack-documentation/blob/master/source/qu...</a>

At Configuring the Network topic, I got an error:

[root@localhost ~]# systemctl restart network
Job for network.service failed because the control process exited with
error code.

SIG promotion at FOSSAsia

Next week, I'll be at FOSSAsia, along with a few other projects (Fedora,
ManageIQ, Dogtag).

If you'd like for me to promote the work that you're doing with your
SIG, there's a way for you to do that with our pamphlet template.

At
<a href="https://github.com/rbowen/centos-community-tools/tree/master/pamphlets" title="https://github.com/rbowen/centos-community-tools/tree/master/pamphlets">https://github.com/rbowen/centos-community-tools/tree/master/pamphlets</a>
you can see the template(s) for creating your own SIG pamphlet, and two
examples of what this will look like.

You can take the file CentOS-SIGs.odt and fill it in with the relevant
information about your SIG - what it's for, how to get involved, how to
consume the output of the SIG, and so on -

autofs mounts all map entries after unmount timeout

Hello,

i have run an update on a machine with

CentOS release 7.4.1708 and autofs 1:5.0.7-70.el7_4.1

to

CentOS release 7.6.1810 and autofs 1:5.0.7-99.el7

The configuration did not change, all auto.* maps look the same as
before. After the update, the autofs seems to be broken for the direct
mounts. When reaching the umount timeout it does the opposite and mounts
all direct mounts and never umounts.

Systemd's [ OK ] in green beginning of line

Hi

I have to (re-)write many bootup scripts to move a bunch of servers from CentOS6 to CentOS7

In sysvinit the "echo_success" and "echo_failure" used to do this.

What is the equivalent for systemd?

thanks
Jobst
